The Kenya rugby fraternity is still coming to terms with the passing of Simbas rugby player Mike Okombe.

The 15 aside player was allegedly killed after he was stabbed in the chest by his wife in Nakuru.

According to Rongai police OCPD Joseph Kioko, Okombe, 27, was allegedly stabbed by his wife Maryanne Wamboi, 37, while attending their friend's party at Olive inn, Nakuru.

The two reportedly had an argument before the wife took a knife and stabbed him on the left side of his chest.

Okombe was rushed to Mediheal hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival. Police are searching for the wife who reportedly fled after the incident.

News of his death sent shockwaves considering that he is the third rugby player to die in under a year.

“Kindly keep the family and the entire Nakuru rugby fraternity in your prayers during these trying times,” Topfry Nakuru RFC wrote .

In 2016, Nondescripts RFC center Ogeto Gecheo died after he succumbed to an injury sustained during their Kenya Cup match against Strathmore Leos.

Two weeks later, Mwamba RFC scrum-half Victor Wayodi also died from cardiac arrest after collapsed during a Kenya Cup tie against Top Fry Nakuru.
